Sophie's Birthday

It was my daughters 2ND birthday this month. I made a bunch of small paper flowers to use as decorations. I just love paper. Anytime I can use crepe and tissue paper I get very excited. I prefer those kinds of decorations to premade children's themed ones you can buy at a retailer. don't get me wrong the Jumper and the pinata were Dora but everything else was put together by my husband and I. It was fun! Unfortunately I only got a few pictures of the actually decorations that always happens to me. If you like paper flowers you should visit this really cool etsy site POMLOVE. They are easy enough to make but I know how lazy one can feel at times.

Do You Need More Time?

This week is going to be hectic! As kailan would say "lets Go Go Go!" I'm trying to do some carving and printing today and then tomorrow will be spent getting ready for doing wedding on Saturday. But I wanted to share some cool gifts I received. I love the colors of the knife and glasses! They are the same color as my kitchen.

Do you wish people a Happy Memorial Day? It kind of seems like a sad holiday. Anyway here we are. Yesterday was very busy. I made a sort of belated Mothers Day/Early Birthday lunch for my mom and grandmother. We ate alfresco under the pine trees in my husbands succulent garden. I also made Rosemary Apricot Short breads from a recipe off Tartelette. They turned out yummy! You should go there even if you don't cook the photos are beautiful. We also had salad from the garden,onion and rosemary goat cheese tart, and roasted vegetable and olive oil tuna sandwiches sandwiches. Then we took my daughter to play in the fountain at Victoria Gardens. I still feel tired. So today I rest.

The Monarchs Were Coming!

Today when I was on Loveology I came across the Etsy seller Whichgoose. She sells the most lovely hair pieces and pins. One of her combs was called cocoon.It reminded me of when I was taking my dog on a walk and we were in the path of a monarch butterfly migration. It was one of the coolest things that ever happened to me. Thousands of butterflies were just swarming all around us for the entire hour we were on our walk. Maybe someday it will happen again! Be sure to stop by here truly beautiful shop!

Tonights Dinner!

Well I went and harvested the lettuce! Micro greens,red oak, swiss chard, and romaine! Im sure they will be yummy! I took some photos of the garden about a month now Ill share them with you!
